My take on this Bible:
To say that I love Bible's is an understatement, and any time I find a Bible that makes it easier to read and navigate God's word well, I am interested. With "The Wayfinding Bible" it did just that. I am one of those people who likes to open the Bible and jump right in, but with the "Wayfinding Bible" I had to read the directions on how to use it, but once I did it was easy to navigate. The plan that I used was called the "Flyover" route. It gives the reader an overview of the Bible in just 54 readings. There are two additional plans, the direct route takes the reader thru the Bible in 215 readings, and the scenic route gets you thru the Bible in 386 readings. There is also  final route located at the back of the Bible it is called the thru hike which takes you thru every word of the Bible in chronological order.With the plan that I used I got a general overview of the Bible, but did feel like I missed some pretty significant parts, so this plan might be best for someone who is a bit more familiar with the Bible. So many things really caught my eye with this one. First of all there are plenty of color maps, they are so bright. That's thing with this Bible the bright colors used really made this such an eye appealing read. There are introductions to each book that help explain why each book was written,what the book is about and how the book will help point you in the right direction toward Jesus. The historical markers that are scattered through the text that focus on locations and events that are taking place in the scripture providing a more in depth look. There are also scenic overlooks and side trips that also enhance the journey thru the scripture. I loved the pictures that are used thru this Bible, I have found myself flipping thru the text to see them, they are so informative, really taking the scripture to the next level. The only thing that Tyndale could improve with this one is to give us study notes, otherwise a Bible that will certainly help you on your travels thru the Bible, allowing you to choose the route that best suites you based on the depth you want to dig and time you want to spend.

A complimentary copy of this Bible was provided for review.
